Teams The Chiefs Players Supported While Growing Up

Footballers generally spend their young lives supporting a team while growing up, but few have been able to play for the team they support. Today, the Fan Park crew looks at which teams the Amakhosi players supported during their youth… 

Here’s a list of the current Chiefs players and who they supported growing up… 

George Lebese– Mamelodi Sundowns

Bernard Parker– Kaizer Chiefs

Ivan Bukhenya– Manchester United

Morgan Gould– Many teams

George Maluleka– Kaizer Chiefs

Siphiwe Tshabalala–Kaizer Chiefs

Eric Mathoho– Kaizer Chiefs

Willard Katsande– Real Madrid, Manchester United & Kaizer Chiefs

Itumeleng Khune– Kaizer Chiefs

Unsurprisingly, many of the current crop of players actually supported the Naturena outfit… Lebese, who was born and raised in Mamelodi, grew up supporting his home team as a youngster. 

Khosi fans, were there any shocks on this list?
